49 Designs Using Spirals and Coils

Twisty Turning Forms That Adorn and Add Function

— August 2, 2010 — Art & Design
Spirals and coils are everywhere. They appear in the curly locks on your head and on your birthday gifts as ribbons. Jewelry design is perfect for the use of spirals and coils. No fashionista should resist the seduction of a coiling bracelet or the sensual embrace of a pair of ear cuff spirals. Spiral staircases are nothing new, but spiraling photoshoots push artistic boundaries.

Check out the collection of applied spirals and coils in the trends gathered here.
